Bob Zelin - Back me up here, or tell me I'm crazy
on Aug 28, 2013 at 7:32:54 pm

Ok the company I work for is breaking into the editing world and we are in the process of setting up a few avid suites. I am trying to have the guys setup an sync patchbay so that we can feed different types of sync to the Adrenaline and Nitris systems, but I am being met with a lot of resistance. The guys are telling me that "no one ever uses a sync patchbay" and that "and that the sync signal is somehow different and can get messed up going through a patchbay, potentially frying any machine that is connected". So as far as I know both HD and SD sync are analog SD video signals and can be patched just like any other analog signal. Also I understand that having a sync patchbay makes life easier to send different types of sync to different rooms for projects where you have to convert the frame rate on output ect. Is this true?, if so can you elaborate on when having sync on a patchbay would be desirable.
